Clarion Hotel Myrtle Beach

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The online reviews said this hotel was a 5 star. It might have been in the days it was first built. When we arrived as you walked in an odor met you. Mildew! We were overcharged. TV channels ...fuzzy... never did get a clear picture. WiFi would not connect. Elevator. ..oh my goodness, I felt nauseated from the odor. Had no air flow. When u get sweaty workers in it all day...we'll u get it. There was a coffee cup and a mint that sat in the hall way the whole time we were there. The cleaners just walked past it. When we checked out my husband complained. The Desk Clerk was nice enough to lessen our charges. High Five for that! If they would get rid of odors, keep it cleaner keep the pool area cleaner it might make a good stay.

The hotel itself was clean, the room was clean. I did have one bad experience with a lady at the front desk being rude but the rest of the staff was very welcoming and friendly. My main issue was the fact they said on the website they had a free shuttle to the airport and they do not and have not had one for over a year!

Hotel is clearly older and in need of cosmetic improvements (such as updated color schemes and painting ceilings in rooms). Breakfast was fine. The free continental offering was sparse however. The dining room was closed and the hotel was undergoing renovations. The internet kept requiring us to reconnect which was annoying. Overall, not a bad hotel just needs some TLC.

The location was very good and the staff was great. The complimentary breakfast was excellent.

Good qualities: Lobby and pool inside area beautiful.Staff is very nice. Restaurant is very convenient on site. Comfortable beds/pillows Bad qualities: Wifi SUCKS!!! They need to upgrade wifi and the staff is aware of the problems but nothing they can do but reset routers daily!! Hotel needs to upgrade and put a router in each room. Not enough towels to give to room daily. We had to call down daily for towels or get them ourselves from front desk. Phone in our room broken all week!! Indoor pool/hot tub closed 2 1/2 of 6 days stay. Icemaker on our floor broken all week. Rooms need upgrading. Old bathrooms and furniture.

Clean hotel.. Nice staff. .. and close to the beach.

Was a good and reasonable stop along myrtle beach without paying ridiculous prices

The complimentary breakfast and staff are superb. The rooms are in dire need of updating and repair. I was moved to a different room because of a leaking toilet, only, to have a running toilet in the new room. The cabinets in the suite were nailed shut because they were broken, rather than replaced or repaired. For the price paid, I would have expected the rooms to be in better condition. But, all in all , I definitely enjoyed my stay.

Really nice place and great location. Indoor and outdoor pool right on the intercoastal. Restaurant on the premises - didn't have an extensive menu, but it was good. Game room for the kids. Our room was clean and comfortable. And the full, hot breakfast was delicious. We will stay here again for sure :)

Booked with orbitzs so I pre-paid with my pre-paid visa...get to hotel and they need another CC for incendentals but won't take my pre-paid card I book room with.... Then to make matters worst I booked another room and left my CC on bed...but of course I didn't leave it in there hotel room cause they checked twice and it was not there.... Check out was @ 11am I said something about my cc being missing @ 1pm and waited in lobby for an hour while they said they were looking.... @ 3pm when housekeeping staff gets off my card was charged @ a gas station up the street from hotel!!! Staff is theives!!!!!! From GM down to pool boy.... I will never stay here again!!!!!!

The staff was very friendly, and the location was very convenient, but the hotel itself is very dated. There was a musty smell on the floor above the lobby. The hotel was fine for a quick weekend stay, but I would not want to stay for the week. Based on that I would recommend for a short stay and the price was very nice for peak season.

BAD: The bed was sunken in. Very uncomfortable and the furniture was outdated. GOOD: The staff was great. The check-in staff and the housekeeping staff also the staff serving the complimentary breakfast and yes the breakfast was delicious.

Kudos to the photographer who provided the advertisement photos, he fooled me. The indoor pool and hot tub were not warm enough. The chlorine was so strong in the hot tub the vapors would burn your eyes. The staff were really not very helpful or knowledgeable when asking them about the area.

The manager and the entire staff was the best I ever had. Enjoyed my stay to the uttermost

Only one elevator working, 2 family reuions that weekend. Stairway very drity havent been clean since hotel open. Location nothing open, old mall in front of hotel closed.

Need more help at the desk for check in and out. Room was clean. Breakfast was barely acceptable

The motel was wonderful and close to the beach. The kids enjoyed the indoor pool along with the waterfall when you enter the motel. It was a great location for the price and close to the mall.

We needed a room for one night and the room was adequate. There were two beds in the room which seemed very small but comfortable. It would have been nice if the Wi-Fi had been free.

This hotel was nice but nothing special. The rooms were clean (although we did find a pair of toddler shoes under the bed that did not belong to us) but the decor was somewhat dated. They had updated to plush white linens but the beds themselves left a lot to be desired. The hotel was being refurbished during our stay and the smell of paint on the 4th floor was a bit overwhelming at times and it was frustrating trying to get 3 kids all the way down the hallway without them touching the taped off areas. The pool area and game room were nice and I would suggest spending the few extra bucks a night for a river view because it was a much nicer view than the parking lot. I would also suggest avoiding the onsite restaurant because the food was a overpriced for the quality. All in all, it was a decent place to stay but we would not stay there again. We will be opting for ocean front with a kichten for all future trips.

It was a great place to stay!
